    You have just come up with the key to the kingdom on this one.  

    Introduce this in Congress and make it federal so it applies to all states.

    Call it The "Do Unto the Least of These" Act of 2012.  The title taken from another one of that radical Rabbi's famous rants:  "Whatever you neglected to do unto one of the least of these, you neglected to do unto me!"

    As you said, and tightening up the wording just a little:  "Anything that legislators require the recipients of any form of public assistance do in order to receive benefits, legislators also have to do to continue in office or be put on the ballot."

    The debate on that would, in and of itself, make it worthwhile.

    Yes, and watch all the False Believers scurry around looking for excuses to vote No on the bill.  The "Christians without Jesus."  Mammon-worshipers all of them.  It's about time to put them to the test and see what they really believe.  

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

    •  It isn't just the "Say Sweet Jesus and .... (0+ / 0-)

      all will be well" people that are a  problem here. (You know, "We have guns in schools because we don't have prayer." ignoring the twenty-year efforts of gun libertarians who "love Jesus".)

      We also have the extortionists: "Legislators have to have higher and higher pay to keep them from being corrupt."  You have to provide tax "incentives" for the wealthy but must cut programs for the poor in order to do that because that money "incentivizes them to be lazy".

      And in Alabama you have both in one package.  You have to have low teacher pay to make sure they don't become corrupt, incompents.  You have to have high legislative pay to make sure they don't becom corrupt incompetents.  The Bible says so, without reference to chapter or verse.
